Back in July at Comic-Con, we were given early access to the Legendary Pictures booth where we tried out a cool new Oculus Rift experience inspired by Pacific Rim, followed by an exclusive tour of the Crimson Peak Gothic Gallery led by director Guillermo del Toro himself. Due to the intimate nature of the tour, it was hard to capture any quality video of the tour, but Legendary has now made a video available so you can see what we saw, complete with commentary from del Toro himself. And while the experience isn't quite as cool without wearing the Oculus, the Pacific Rim portion is featured too. Watch!
Here's Guillermo del Toro's tour of the Crimson Peak: Gothic Gallery at Comic-Con from Legendary:
And here's a featurette on the Pacific Rim: Jaeger Pilot experience from Oculus (via SlashFilm):
If you want to read about my experience testing out the Pacific Rim: Jaeger Pilot experience with the Oculus, you can check out my report from Comic-Con right here, complete with photos of all the Crimson Peak props on display inside the impressive, confined booth from Legendary Pictures. This is as close as fans will get to a first look at the forthcoming horror film from del Toro, especially since the footage that was shown in Hall H was exclusive to Comic-Con attendees. Crimson Peak arrives in theaters on October 16th, 2015 while Pacific Rim 2 has been set for release on April 7th, 2017. Stay tuned for more on these films.
